They're back.

The F-15C's from Idaho will be back for a return engagement this August in Windsor.

The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. It is considered among the most successful modern fighters with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses in dogfights. Following reviews of proposals, the USAF selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976. The F-15 is expected to be in service with the U.S. Air Force until 2025.

The pilots in 2009 were exceptional in showing the crowds(line ups were all day) a close up inside look at one of America's premier fighter aircraft. From what we were told, it was well worth the look.
Air superiority is coming to Windsor International Airport August 21 & 22.
